CASA red and blue
Advocating for the best interest of children in foster care in Newton and Walton counties

A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is an integral factor in a child's life in foster care. Children in foster care that have a CASA volunteer spend an average of 8 months less in foster care. You can make that difference happen with just a little of your time each month.

As a volunteer your basic requirements are just a few! You will be expected to:

  • Visit your assigned foster child(ren) a minimum of once a month.
  • Write recommendations for court hearings, usually held approximately every three months.
  • Attend the court hearings, if possible, to support your foster child.

Orientation consists of 30 hours of classroom training and 10 hours of courtroom observation.

To join our next orientation class, please complete an application online at https://www.alcovycasa.org/get_involved
